5 THINGS: Oliver Cromwell, Phil Collins and Others

Here are some events for today! Five Things! Good times!

Here are the (more than) Five Things for Wednesday, January 30, 2013:

Yay, stories! There is a storytime session for 3 to 5-year-olds at Peace Dale Library at 10:30 a.m. For more info, click here.

“All the world’s a stage / And all the men and women merely players.” – Bill Shakespeare. The weekly Contemporary Theater Company acting lessons are at 5 p.m. For more info, click here.

“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.” – Friedrich Nietzsche (of all people). There are social dance classes starting at 6 p.m. at the Towers. For more info, click here.

Hey, I’m no longer on vacation! But I’m still combing through about 500 e-mails I got while I was on vacation, yikes. So, if you contacted me in the past 10 days, it might take me a bit to get back to you, but I am making my way through the backlog.

Register for South Kingstown Little League or Softball! Want to play Little League this year? Cool, click here! Is slow pitch softball more your speed? Cool, click here! Both leagues offer early bird specials if you register in January instead of February, so don’t dawdle!

Has the time or date or details of one of your events changed? If you posted the event yourself on our site, then remember – You can always change the details if you’re logged into your Patch account. Failing that, leave a comment on the item in question! The issue is that lately, people have been e-mailing me, and depending on the time of the day, it can take me anywhere from 30 minutes or 30 hours to get to the item, unfortunately. As a result, I encourage you all to be as proactive as possible!

Oh no! Maybe there seriously aren’t that many events today, given that it’s Martyrs' Day in India. As a result, our events calendar for today is a bit barren. If you’re having an event, please let us know in the comments. Also, make sure it isn’t left out in the future – Submit it via this link (as long as you’re logged into your Patch account).

Sign up for our daily newsletter! Hey, I realize we have a lot of neat features and knick-knacks on the site, so it can be confusing to keep up with it all. Want just one simple, easy to read daily digest? Sign up for our e-mail newsletter here then. It comes out between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. roughly, every single day of the week. Amazing, I know!

Holy smokes, they did stuff like that??? On this day in 1661, Oliver Cromwell was executed. One problem with that – He actually died in 1659, so the “execution” was two years after his death.

Please reform Genesis and stop schilling so much for Disney soundtracks. Happy 62nd birthday to Phil Collins!
